To give context to this bio:

1720 Joseph Lane, Sr (and wife Julian) arrived in Chowan County, NC with sons John b. 1698, Joseph b. 1700, Benjamin b. 1702 & Thomas b. 1704 (1) 1721 Barnabus McKinne arrived in Chowan where son Joseph b. 1700 and Patience b. abt 1705 met and married. (2)

1724 Joseph Lane, Jr w/ wife Patience had son John (3) 1738 John (age 14) registered his animal mark. He is referred to as John Lane, son of Joseph Lane, Jr. (4) 1740 John (age 16) was given property by his father Joseph Lane. (5) 1755 John (age 31) was in GA when father Joseph gave a slave to his wife Mary and daus: Ann, Mary and Patience. His mother Patience McKinnie Lane gave her son John Lane part of McKinnie property (6)

12 Aug 1755 John Lane of GA sold to his father Joseph Lane the property that he received from his mother. (7) 7 May 1760 John Lane of SC petitioned Halifax court regarding the land he had received. (8) 7 Feb 1764 John Lane of Craven County, SC appointed his brother James Lane of Halifax to sell property and 11 May 1764 John Lane of Craven County, SC sold his property to his brother Joel. (9) (NOTE 1761 John Lane, uncle to this John was a witness for Solomon Pope being granted Granville Property. John b. 1724 could NOT be in NC while he was in GA/SC (10))

1760-1764 John, son of Joseph was in SC. He is likely that he stayed in SC as by 1764 he had sold all of his Edgecombe and Halifax property.

Y-chromosome DNA evidence for two descendants of Osborn Lane (1755-1840) of SC match the other descendants of Joseph Lane and the descendants of Benjamin Lane and Thomas Lane. (11) No other Lane family members from those of John b. 1698. Benjamin b. 1702 and Thomas b. 1704 have been found in in GA/SC from 1755-1764 besides John Lane, son of Joseph and Patience. _____________________________________________________________________

1) Ancestry.com. NC Taxpayers, 1679-1790 (vol 2) where all five men are listed as taxpayers in Chowan (or Roanoke) counties. (These ages are estimated, but they had to be at least 16 to be taxed.)

2) Barnabus McKinne supposedly arrived in NC by 1721 https://www.ncpedia.org/biography/mckinne-barnabas

3) An estimate of a birth date of John Lane, son of Joseph Lane and Patience McKinne is based on 1) arrival of the McKinne family in Chowan County (1721), 2) a 1 May 1725 deed in Bertie County NC DB, B, p.145, for Joseph Lane and wife Patience, so that they had to be married by this time and 3) the known ages of two of his brothers: Jesse Lane b. 1733 & Joel Lane b. 1739.

4) Book of Animal marks has John Lane, son of Joseph, Jr:  See https://www.ncgenweb.us/franklin/brands/brands.html This is the evidence of his connection to his father, and that his grandfather Joseph Lane was still alive.

5) 1740 “Joseph Lane of Edgecombe (1700-1777) giving with affection to my son John Lane” a parcel of land (338 ac) near Geo Goodwin FS 7547218 Halifax vol. 1, 354 (image 198/497)

6) 19 Feb 1755 Joseph Lane of Edgecombe gave to daughters of John Lane: Ann, Mary & Patience and to wife of John Lane, Mary a slave w/ sons of Joseph Lane, Joseph Lane and James Lane as witnesses, Halifax FS # 7547218 DB 2, p. 211 (image 356/497) Witnesses had to be at least 14, thus both sons b. bef 1731.

7) 12 Aug 1755 John Lane of GA sold the property that he has received from his mother Patience Lane to his father, Joseph Lane of Edgecombe Halifax FS#547218 DB 2, p. 319 (image 416-417/497)

10) 3 Nov 1761 Solomon Pope granted 700 ac in Edgecombe with John Lane as witness, “Grants of Granville District of NC”, abstracted by Margaret Hoffman, Patent BK II, 1046-248 11) group 11 of https://www.familytreedna.com/public/lane?iframe=ycolorized

NOTE: “Southside VA Families,” Vol 2 by Boddie (found at Google) p. 295 is incorrect. John Lane, oldest son of Patience McKinne and Joseph Lane did receive property from his mother in 1755, but he sold that property back to his father. He probably died in SC. He did NOT leave a will in 1774 in Halifax, listing 9 children. (The will belongs to his uncle John Lane b. 1698)
